DailyDirt: National Robotics Week — Save The Bots!
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
The third annual National Robotics Week is currently underway, if you didn’t get the memo. The second week of April was officially designated for robotics in 2010 by House Resolution 1055. If you haven’t hugged your robot today, it’s about time you did, perhaps.
- A full calendar of events is available at nationalroboticsweek.org. There’s something going on in every state, and you can keep up with some of the activity via Facebook. [url]
- The iRobot Corp, famous for its line of robot vacuum cleaners, is sponsoring some public awareness projects for students to get kids interested in robots and science/technology subjects. FYI, iRobot products are also serving in the military to help clear out explosives from the battlefield, so its robots don’t just clean up dirt. [url]
- If you’re in Florida, the University of Miami School of Law will be discussing legal and policy issues relating to robotics at its inaugural ‘We Robot’ conference, April 21-22. The future of lawsuits against robots covers some things you might not expect. [url]
